Bio Sketch of Dr. Thomas Paul Williams

Dr. Thomas Paul Williams accepted Christ in 1956.  He was called to the ministry in 1975 and ordained into the ministry in 1983.  He is currently the full time pastor and founder of Agape Storge Christian Center, Greenville, Mississippi (founded in 1984), known as one of the largest churches in the city.

With a heart’s desire for Believers to comprehend who they are in Christ Jesus and the terms of their covenant, Dr. Williams instructs by precept and example; the unadulterated, ever living, all powerful seed of the Word of God.

The interdenominational, interracial church consists of over 600 members and is one of the fastest growing churches in the “Greater Delta Area”.  The church has purchased over 32 acres of “prime land”, where they plan to construct a Worship Center, Family Life Center and a Christian School housing grades K-12 and is presently negotiating their existing place of Worship, which measures 16,000 square feet.

He has received many honors and served on several committees including:  Student Government Association Vice- President; Outstanding Young Men of America; Washington County Ministerial Alliance; National Association of Supervision and Curriculum Development; Parent Teacher Association and International Ministries.  On June 16, 2001, he was presented with an honorary degree of Doctor of Divinity by the Triune Biblical University founded in 1981 in Longview, Washington. This was an astounding achievement as he was one of five recipients to be selected from several hundred applicants throughout the nation.

He married the former Gwendolyn M. Stewart on December 20, 1970.  They have been blessed with two children, Shauna and Kendra, and a niece, Valerie Buckner.

Dr. Williams continues to speak at various schools within the state of Mississippi both public and private to elementary, middle and high school level students on their ancestral history according to the Bible, how to overcome past mistakes and/or present environmental issues to experience a better life, and how to fulfill their God-given purpose.  On a consistent basis, Dr. Williams is called on to minister to victims of traumatic death and domestic violence. He is also requested to minister prayer at various social and political events at home and abroad. On several occasions, Dr. Williams has been invited by the State Representative to render the devotion for their opening session.

A long-time administrator, family man, servant of God, and friend to the community; Dr. Williams is an accomplished man who is constantly striving for God’s best in life and gives God all the glory for that which he has been blessed with thus far.
